Projects / Osiris


Osiris is a host integrity management system that can be used to monitor changes to a network of hosts over time and report those changes back to the administrator(s). Osiris takes periodic snapshots of the filesystem, configurations, and logs, and stores them on a central management host. When changes are detected, Osiris will log these events and optionally send email to an administrator. Osiris also has preliminary support for monitoring other system data, including user lists, file system details, kernel modules, and network interface configurations.
